New York-based boutique broker Rosenblatt Securities has hired Brian
Reynolds as its chief market strategist.
Reynolds specialises in applying credit market analysis to
equity investing and has 16 years experience as a bond and money market
portfolio manager. His views on equities come from analysing structural trends
such as money flows between bonds and stocks and return thresholds for pensions
and endowments, rather than company fundamentals.
“Brian’s unique approach to offering actionable credit
market insight to equity investors fits nicely with our firm’s emphasis on
deeply expert, practitioner-led analysis that doesn’t follow the standard Wall
Street formula,” said Joe Gawronski, president and COO of Rosenblatt
Securities. “We are delighted to have him on board.”
Reynolds joins Rosenblatt from broker-dealer WJB Capital Group, where he also served as chief market strategist. Prior to WJB, he spent 16 years as a senior
vice president, economist and portfolio manager at David L. Babson & Co.,
and several years as the fixed income and economics columnist for
TheStreet.com. Frank LoGalbo, who was the principal salesperson and marketer
for Reynolds at WJB, joins Rosenblatt along with Reynolds.
